NeSI provides a range of services, people, expertise, and information to help computational research projects become reality

A statistical modelling approach to monitoring ecosystems

“From my perspective, it was extraordinarily beneficial to have access to NeSI as resource, it really transformed what I thought I would be able to do. The field of statistics at the moment is really on the edge and is advancing all the time."

Aerodynamics modelling paves the way for improved yacht designs

“Without computational resources such as the Pan cluster at NeSI, we would be unable to use accurate, yet computationally demanding, predictive methods such as Large Eddy Simulation."

Native forests absorbing more carbon dioxide

“High resolution modelling is essential to be able to use this technique effectively in New Zealand. NeSI support opened the door for us to work with models running at the spatial resolution we need.”
